Narain Karthikeyan has not ruled out returning to F1 yet again. Six years after his 2005 debut, the now 34-year-old returned to the grid at the beginning of last season with HRT before losing the seat to Daniel Ricciardo. He then made a one-off comeback as his sponsors paid for a seat in India’s inaugural Grand Prix earlier this year.
That Delhi event “has helped drivers like me connect to corporate India and we are now looking at a few options and trying to work out something although nothing seems finalised”, Indian Karthikeyan is quoted by the Times of India.
HRT has one of the two remaining vacant seats on the 2012 grid, but is not preparing to name Pedro de la Rosa’s teammate until next year.
“I’m not directly talking with other teams, as my management will handle that,” revealed Karthikeyan. “I am focusing on other things for now.”
